2014 V Star 1300 Deluxe - Need help with audio
I just purchased a 2014 v star 1300 Deluxe brand new. The audio system is not working when I plug my ipod nano in. I here the beeps when I plug it in, but no sound. Does anyone know how to fix this? My dealer has no clue and they are trying to figure it out, but this could take a weeks time. Also, does anyone know how or if you can play music from your phone through bluetooth?

That seems to be a common issue (not necessarily a problem with the equipment, more of a documentation and dealer training issue). Anyway, there have been a couple of threads on the 1300 Deluxe audio system here in the last year or so you'll just have to search for them.

Oh, and congrats on the purchase and welcome to the forum!

Yeah I found 2 other threads about this issue, but they didn't explain how they fixed the issue. They just said it was fixed.

hey @WCoach15 did you see this response on an issue with it?

I use the iPhone with music mp3s and an Internet radio app called Live365. When I get the app playing music from the Internet on the phone speaker I then plug in the jack in the saddlebag and it plays through the fairing speakers once I start the bike up.

Sometimes if your iPhone looses connection or the Internet speed is slow, the station will cut out and it stops, then if you wait for it to buffer and connect again it starts playing again.

What I have noticed is that it will play through the Live365 radio app and then all of a sudden it will start playing MP3s and Podcasts I have saved on the phone. What the? I dont know how it changes but it does. I thought maybe if I pressed the track button it would switch back to the Live365 app but it does not, I litlerally have to pull over and mess with the iPhone. This happened on my and my wifes iPhone 4s.

I'm thinking the way to go is an iPod with only mp3s on it.

oh and since you got it brand new, do like I told this person, take that BRAND NEW UNDER WARRANTY bike back to the dealer have them fix it, thats why you paid the big bucks for NEW buddy! if that other answer does not help you.

Thanks! I've tried multiple ways, still without any luck. I'm having to take it upto the dealer and leave it for a day for them to figure it out. If anyone knows Montero1, I tried to PM him to see how they fixed his, but he hasn't replied yet.
